Welcome to the very first post on the official website of Easton Fit!
So, what is Easton Fit?
Easton Fit is a movement. A place, a community created to inspire people to create goals for themselves and achieve those goals. I started lifting weights about 4 years ago. What started as a hobby eventually became something that I was truly passionate about. Regardless of how much I loved it or the community I became apart of, I really never thought it would be anything more than something I did to look good and not feel as guilty when I ate entire pizzas. Fast forward to March of 2016: I decided to compete in my very first Bodybuilding show with the International Natural Bodybuilding Association. After about 10 months of the most intense training (physically and mentally) I’ve ever put myself through, I competed in the INBA US Warriors show on September 3rd. I ended up winning 1st place in my class, the award for Best Poser, and Best in Show overall. The experience was unlike anything I’ve ever been through in my entire life. It truly changed the way I thought about the fitness industry and my own outlook on achieving goals in general. The switch was simple, yet remarkably profound: If you want to make a change in your self, you have the power to make it happen. Simple, and as complicated, as that.
In today’s day and age of social media saturated with #bodygoals and a million trend diets and secrets and scientists claiming something is healthy one day and cancerous the next, I think it’s really, really easy for people to get discouraged and think that getting in shape or living a healthy lifestyle is some sort of black magic or eating only kale salads. Even the bodybuilding world is riddled with performance enhancing drugs. But going through this process as a natural athlete has shown me that honestly, it’s not. Frickin. Rocket. Science. There IS science behind it. It is work. It takes effort. It takes thought, and planning, and you can’t eat pizza every day BUT YOU CAN DO IT. It won’t be a 28 day program, it won’t be a 7 day teatox, but it is much, much simpler than you think. And that’s what I want Easton Fit to be. I want to create a social media platform that doesn’t just post ripped people in bathing suits holding ten pound weights as “fitspo.” I want to use it as a place where everyday people who have never worked out a day in their lives can come to my page and learn something. Because as fun as it is to stalk hot models on Instagram, education is what sticks. Real motivation and simple tips that are actually possible to apply in your every day life. Because you are worth it.
So, here it is. A little look into the life of a body builder; the good, the bad, and the hungry. I hope this site can help you no matter where you are in your fitness journey. Big things are coming. Let’s do this thing.
Welcome to the Easton Fit family.
